A new Decalogue has been adopted by some of our day, the first words of which reads, “Thou shalt not disagree,” and a new set of Beatitudes too, which begins, “Blessed are they that tolerate everything, for they shall not be made accountable for anything.” It is now the accepted thing to talk over religious differences in public with the understanding that no one will try to convert another or point out errors in his belief.
Even when God brings discipline and correction to our lives, He does so to save us from ruin. His intent is always life-giving and redemptive.
Never correct someone out of self-righteousness or a need to be right. The motive for bringing correction should be to see the other person enter into God’s best for their life. Love, not pride or anger or anything else, is the driving force for Biblical correction.
